She has focused on the treatment of infertility with Chinese medicine for 30 years, and has studied with some of China’s most revered specialists. Out of the wisdom and skill of expert clinicians in infertility clinics in China, and the experience she has gained working with couples in the west, and their specialists, Jane has been able to develop acupuncture and herbal formulas appropriate for western patients having difficulty conceiving from a number of different causes.
Jane is author of the seminal and highly acclaimed “Treatment of Infertility with Chinese Medicine”, published in 2004 (2nd edition 2013) by Elsevier Science translated into 3 foreign languages and now in its 8th reprint. It remains the standard text on infertility for TCM students and practitioners world wide.
